Get ready to have fun as you walk, run, and jump in an obstacle course like no other! St. Theresa Catholic School is proud to sponsor "Walk for Water," a unique fund-raising event to benefit the community of Kasai.
Kasai is located in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in Africa. The people of Kasai don't just lack running water; they lack water, period. In order to obtain water, women and children walk 5 miles (approximately 4 hours) under the hot sun to a place where rain water has collected in water holes. A spring with clean, pure water was recently discovered 8 miles away from Kasai. Our dream is to provide the people of Kasai with fresh water by channeling the water from the spring to the village. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to get the process started.

"Walk for Water" is so much more than your average walk! In this fun-packed family event, you'll walk and run at your own pace, and complete 12 stations of unique obstacle courses for all levels of fitness. With the help of professional fitness instructors, participants will flip tires, jump rope, throw balls, and much, much more!
This event is open to children and adults of all ages, and can be as easy or as challening as you want it to be. Smaller children will have childproof layouts with obstacle courses comparable to those for older children and adults.
